In the morning session, we will sketch a few letters, digitise them, export the font, and use it in InDesign.
In the afternoon, we will add additional letters to the font, kern them, optimize them for the screen, add diacritics, and produce the combined letters. At the end of the day, we will not have a finished font, but a respectable start.
Space for this event is extremely limited, so make sure to register asap!
